• A man, 50, of the 100 block of Calkins Drive, Sugar Grove, told police June 20 he believed he may have been defrauded by a blacktop contractor. He said he hired the company to sealcoat his driveway for $350. He said the contractor ultimately billed him $1,600, claiming workers used more material than they had first estimated they would need. The man paid them in cash and by check. Police advised the man to put a hold on the check. 

• A man, who owns a tobacco shop in the 0-100 block of Sugar Lane, Sugar Grove, told police June 24 he intended to file charges against a former employee who had confessed to stealing about $8,000 in cash and products from the store over a 2-month period. The man said the female employee, of Plano, had agreed in writing under a private arrangement to pay back the amount stolen in monthly installments to avoid prosecution. She since had stopped paying, the man said.
